I bought this white sheer tank at ALOHA RAG?also. The summer white dots make my bubble tenugui look more colorful. I love using tenugui as a scarf and also as a head accessory.

“Tenugui and Klut” – The second episode “Tenugui meet Klut”

How amazing these photos are! We got a letter and photos from The Osterlens Museum in Sweden.
They had an exhibition called “Tenugui and Klut”, about meeting between the Japanese Tenugui and the traditional head garment “Klut” from the south of Sweden.
The exhibition arrangement was based on an idea by a Japanese artist Takao Momiyama and his wife Gunnel Momiyama Petterson who live in Sweden and presented to the Osterlens Museum. At the opening ceremony at the museum, all visitors had a chance to meet Tenugui and wearing it, then took their pictures in many different ways. We could see some influence from their tradition, but also find evolve to new styles.
Thank you very much for sharing with us the beautiful creation “East meet West”.

The Gordon School – composition #10 ? Picnic on a blanket -

“Picninc on a blanket”


I used the idea of a picnic for my tenugui becuase picnics give me a great feeling. You can enjoy eating and be stylish at the same time! I have designed a sandwich, drinks, dots and a picnic basket – I love the summery feeling of the colors.
